West Ham: Irons in talks to sign Gianluca Scamacca

West Ham: Irons in talks to sign Gianluca Scamacca -Premier League News

Sky Sports reporter Dharmesh Sheth has confirmed that West Ham are in talks to sign Sassuolo striker Gianluca Scamacca this summer.

The Lowdown: Premier League interest

David Moyes will be looking to bolster his attacking ranks after another season relying so heavily on the fitness of Michail Antonio, and the 23-year-old is the latest name to be on the Irons’ radar.

The Athletic first credited the Hammers with an interest in the forward last month, but they were set to face competition from Premier League rivals Arsenal and Newcastle United for his signature.

The report claims that the Italian is open to an exit despite having four years remaining on his contract, and a move to the London Stadium might just be on the horizon.

The Latest: West Ham in talks for Scamacca

Taking to Twitter, Sheth revealed that West Ham have opened negotiations with Scamacca over a potential move in the coming weeks. He wrote:

“West Ham United in talks with Sassuolo over the signing of Gianluca Scamacca. No official bid – talks centre on fee & structure. PSG also interested but unwilling – as it stands – to meet asking price. Valuation thought to be €50m.”

The Verdict: Holding the advantage

PSG are a very strong competitor to try and fend off, but the fact that they aren’t yet willing to meet Sassuolo’s asking price gives the Irons a huge advantage.

The seven-cap international, who Sky Sports pundit Kevin Campbell once said can cause ‘a lot of problems’, netted 16 times in 36 Serie A outings last season, as per Transfermarkt, highlighting how prolific he can be in the final third.

Should West Ham move for Scamacca?

No

With Antonio being the only natural goalscorer in the building, Scamacca would be a fantastic addition for Moyes, whose door has seemingly now been opened to make the first move.
